TO GO WITH UN-environment-biodiversity-agriculture-India-cotton,FOCUS by Mariette le Roux British Environment Minister Richard Benyon (C) speaks to local political leaders during an interaction with Indian cotton farmers in Warangal District, some 170kms north-east of Hyderabad on October 18, 2012. When Indian icon Mahatma Gandhi took up the baton for home-grown cotton a century ago, he may not have realised the devastating impact its cultivation would have on the land he so loved. Cotton is a thirsty plant and parts of India drought-prone. But the intensive farming process for cotton leaches the soil and requires high pesticide and fertiliser use that pollutes further downstream.
